Sony has been expanding its presence in the PC gaming space at a rapid rate these last couple of years, and that, unsurprisingly, has reflected in the company enjoying increasing revenues and sales of the platform. That has continued over the last several months as well.
In its recent quarterly fiscal report, Sony revealed that over the course of fiscal year 2022/23 (April 2022-March 2023), it saw over $2.49 billion in revenue from peripherals (including PS VR and PS VR2) and sales of PC titles. That’s nearly twice as much as the revenue seen by the company in the previous fiscal year, which stood at $1.37 billion.
All quarters of the fiscal year saw year-on-year growth in revenue, with Q4 (January-March) in particular nearly tripling, seeing $1.048 billion in revenue. That, of course, aligns with the launch of the PlayStation VR2 in February, though given reports of disappointing sales for the VR headset and Sony allegedly looking to cut back on production, it remains to be seen how much it will contribute going forward.
It’s also worth mentioning that the last several months have seen a string of PlayStation releases on PC, including the likes of The Last of Us Part 1, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Returnal, and more.
Presumably, the company will continue to release an increasing number of PC titles going forward. Last year, Sony said that by FY 2025, roughly 50% of all of its new software releases would be on PC. It has also said that all of its live service titles going forward will see simultaneous PC releases.
